Cyber Monday 2018: Best Outdoor and Fitness Deals (Fitbit, Apple Watch, Etc)

      Comments Off on Cyber Monday 2018: Best Outdoor and Fitness Deals (Fitbit, Apple Watch, Etc)

Most outdoor fanatics agree: It’s preferable to be outside than it is to be inside, trolling through deals on your computer. But especially in winter, a well-chosen jacket—or backpack, or fitness tracker—can make your time outside so much more comfortable. On this Cyber Monday, we spent hours trolling the web and looking for our favorite outdoor deals so that you don’t have to.

Deals tend to flow and out of availability and vary in price during Cyber Monday. Please bear with us. We will continue to update this list as we learn about new deals, and cross out links that no longer offer the promised discount, or sell out.

Our Favorite Fitness Deals


Fitbit Versa for $149 ($51 off)

Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target

Fitbit is having a killer sale, and for the money, the Versa is one of the most versatile and effective fitness trackers you can buy. If you prefer a more stripped-down tracker, the new Charge 3 is also currently $30 off.

Apple Watch Series 3 for $229 ($50 off)

Amazon, Best Buy

We loved the Apple Watch Series 4, but the Series 3 remains an excellent, waterproof option for fitness-oriented athletes who also want to check messages on the go.

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Sapphire for $650 ($150 off)

Amazon, Garmin, B&H Photo, Dell, REI

If you do any kind of outdoor activity, the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus is the best GPS-enabled fitness watch you can get for this kind of money. The sapphire glass version is stronger, but both are worthwhile. B&H and Dell offer the $550 non Sapphire versions, which are also on sale.

ProForm 905 Treadmill for $850 ($100 off)


Too cold or wet to run outside? The ProForm 905 is compatible with an iFit subscription to recreate trails from all over the world. You can watch on the display as the treadmill automatically adjusts the incline.

TRX Minimal System for $65 ($35 off)


Here’s the deal: TRX bodyweight suspension training is very effective and convenient, since it packs down so small. But if you’re worried that you’re going to pull a rotator cuff or get irretrievably and embarrassingly tangled in a doorway, the Minimal System is an easy way to try it out without dropping three figures.

Rad Power Bikes

United by Blue Bison Women’s Puffer Jacket for $171 ($57 off)

United by Blue

Bison fiber is normally discarded as waste in ranch country, but United by Blue blends the hollow, compactable hair with recycled polyester in a warm, durable puffer. My testing jacket has kept me warm while hiking and biking in 20-30 degree temperatures.

Petzl Tikkina Pet Headlamp for $15 ($5 off)

Backcountry, Moosejaw

I have other headlamps that cost much more. But when I’m walking the dogs or going on a late run, this one always seems to get the job done. It weighs 3 oz, projects up to 150 lumens, and the battery life lasts for 60 hours. Done and done.

Salewa Ultra Train 2 for $98 ($40 off)


Zappos is having an enormous sale, which is worth checking out if you’re looking for running shoes or fitness apparel. Salewa’s “speed hikers” combine the durability of a climbing shoe with the form factor of a running one.

Thule Snowboard Racks for $175 ($45 off)

Amazon, Moosejaw, Backcountry

A lot of Thule products are discounted around the web for Cyber Monday, which makes it a great time to pick up anything from a roof box to a backpack to a jogging stroller. Our pick are these snowboard racks, because, well… if you weren’t on the mountain this weekend, you will be soon.

RadPower Bikes RadWagon for $1,399 ($400 off)

RadPower Bikes

Not only is RadPower’s RadWagon one of the most affordable electric cargo bikes out there, it’s one of the most convenient. Rather than riding 200 miles home from a preferred retailer, RadPower will deliver one to your door. You can also opt to have it assembled by a mobile bike shop.

Free Belt Plate, Skid Plate, and $50 Gift Card with Boosted Mini S Purchase ($749)


Boosted is currently offering free accessories with the purchase of the Boosted Mini S.

Cotopaxi Paray Lightweight Jacket for $50 ($50 off)


I’m a big fan of Cotopaxi’s colorful, lightweight windbreakers that pack down into their own pockets for travel. The Paray jacket has a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish on tough, 20-dernier nylon. Cotopaxi uses the proceeds to fund projects that reduce preventable disease, create jobs, and alleviate poverty.

Topo Designs Daypack for $119 ($30 off)

Nordstrom, Zappos, Topo Designs, Huckberry

If you want a durable, everyday backpack with the same classic look as a Fjallraven Kanken but with a slimmer profile, I suggest the Topo daypack. I’ve had mine for a few years now and the 1000-dernier Cordura has been dragged all over the world with nary a scratch. I also like their slim-cut, retro mountain fleece ($30 off).

Otterbox Venture 25 Cooler for $210 ($60 off)


Otterbox is currently holding a sitewide 25 percent off sale, if you’ve been looking for a cooler that will last forever or a case that will protect your phone when you drop it off a cliff.
